Jeremy Corbyn is at a dinner party with EIGHT other "FINED": The Labor MP says the ex-leader has been punished


Jeremy Corbyn has been fined for breaking the rule of six at a dinner party, one of his party's MPs said this morning.

Tooting MP Rosena Allin-Khan said twice this morning that the former Labor leader, 71, has been fined for breaking the rules.

It came after he and his wife, Laura Alvarez, 51, sat at a table of nine in a friend's house.

It came after Boris Johnson's father Stanley apologized after seeing him break the rules for wearing masks in stores.

Dr. Allin-Khan said: “Nobody is exempt and Jeremy Corbyn has rightly apologized. It was wrong for him to be at a dinner party with so many people.

“I understand more and more people were arriving and when it was over six he should have left.

"He was fined, that is the right course of action and he apologized and that is really important."

"Jeremy Corbyn was wrong, he apologized and that's the right thing to do and he's paying a fine."

"We have seen people like Dominic Cummings break the rules and break the rules for checking his eyesight," she told Good Morning Britain.

The Labor Party was asked for comment by MailOnline.

Corbyn and his guests were fined £ 200 each for violating Covid-19 rules, up to a total of £ 1,800.

The Islington North MP apologized for the incident last night and admitted that it was a "mistake".

Snitch rule: how and by whom are coronavirus violations reported?

Violations of the coronavirus rules can be reported by the authorities to the authorities upon request.

Some police forces have their own pages on which Covid-19 informants can take action against violations of the law.

You will need to upload information to the force, who will then review the "evidence" and decide whether to take further action.

The Met Police has its own page entitled "Tell us about a possible breach of coronavirus measures (Covid-19)".

Councils cannot deal with reports on groups or individuals but can respond to advice on companies in their areas.

"I recently had dinner at a friend's house and the number of guests eventually exceeded five," he told The Sun.

“I understand that staying at dinner was a violation of the rule of six. I apologize for my mistake. & # 39;

Guests at the event reportedly included left wing activists, filmmakers and artists.

One guest got up from the table to take a picture of the other eight, and a non-smiling Corbyn sat two seats away from his wife.

The "rule of six" was introduced by the government on September 14th to control the spread of a second wave of Covid-19.

Those who break the rules face a £ 200 fine for first-time offenders.

The dinner party is believed to have taken place on the same day that Corbyn's older brother Piers led an anti-mask rally by thousands of people in Trafalgar Square.

A source said: “It is clear that Jeremy immediately saw the danger the photo had put him in.

& # 39; His face says it all. He knew that he shouldn't be there and that he should know the rules of all things. & # 39;

David Morris, Tory MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale, described the picture as "disappointing".

"Millions of Britons are quietly sticking to the rules to defeat this terrible virus while Jeremy Corbyn swims around at a posh dinner party," he said.

The rule applies by law across England, which means that gatherings must be limited.

There are also local locks in much of England, with around 16 million Britons living under such local restrictions.

The UK today recorded 7,108 more coronavirus cases and an additional 71 deaths – including a three-month high of seven in Scotland.

The daily infections have increased by 15 percent compared to the 6,178 last Wednesday and almost 80 percent higher than on Wednesday two weeks ago.

However, infections in the UK are a far cry from those seen during the darkest days of the crisis in March and April, when at least 100,000 people were knocked down every day.

Rule of six: The new rules at a glance

FAMILY AND HOUSEHOLDS

OUT: All gatherings of more than six people are illegal, which endangers the traditional family Christmas.

A family of five can only meet one grandparent at a time, while families of six or more are prohibited from meeting anyone.

It doesn't matter how many different households meet, as long as they stick to the rule of six.

Six people from six different households can come together, but two four-person households cannot.

ON: The only exception is when a household or support bubble consists of more than six people.

Support bubbles allow adults who live alone – as well as single parents – to join another household.

SOCIALIZATION

OUT: All social gatherings of more than six people – whether book club, dinner party or picnic – are prohibited.

The police will have the power to break into larger groups in parks, pubs and private homes.

An army of “Covid Marshals” is being recruited by the councils to step up enforcement, patrol city centers, parks, shopping malls and train stations, and encourage large groups to break up.

Those in groups of seven or more face a fine of £ 100, which doubles to a maximum of £ 3,200 for each repeat offense.

OUT: Pubs or restaurants cannot accommodate more than six people at one table. Restaurants can still accommodate more than six people, but each group must be separate and safe from one another.

For example, a group of eight friends cannot circumvent the restriction by booking two neighboring tables of four.

And you can't go to a pub in one group and then join another group. Venues will be fined £ 1,000 for failing to comply with the rules.

Pubs, restaurants, hairdressers and cinemas must record the names and contact details of all customers, visitors and employees for 21 days.

RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES

ON: Churches, synagogues, mosques and temples remain open, although the communities must be at least one meter apart.

ON: Wedding ceremonies and receptions are exempt from the new rules. Up to 30 guests are allowed, but must sit or stand one meter apart.

ON: Funerals are also excluded, 30 people are allowed.

SPORTS

ON: Gyms, leisure centers, and swimming pools will remain open as long as they are "Covid-safe" and enforce social distancing rules. Yoga or exercise classes with more than six people are allowed.

ON: Popular sport is largely unaffected. Recreational sports such as soccer, cricket, rugby, and park runs can continue as long as they comply with the protocols. But teams with more than six players cannot have a beer together after the game.

ON: Professional sports and elite training can continue. Pilot events to reintroduce fans to stadiums can continue, but with a limit of 1,000 spectators.

SCHOOLS, CHILD CARE AND OFFICES

ON: Schools and universities are not affected by the new rules. However, you must continue to work according to the existing guidelines.

ON: Youth groups, registered childcare and playgroups are exempt from the rule of six.

OUT: The rules also apply outside of these settings, so that a group of ten school friends cannot go from the classroom to a park or seven colleagues cannot go from the office to the pub.

PROTESTS

ON: Protests can be conducted in groups of more than six people, provided they are "Covid-safe".

It comes as Boris Johnson's call to the nation to continue the fight against coronavirus was backed by new numbers showing that the rate of infection slowed after restrictions, including the rule of six, were tightened.

The results of the largest Covid-19 study in England showed that the R-rate fell from 1.7 to around 1.1 this month after implementing the new rules.

The director of the study at Imperial College London and Ipsos Mori said the interim results of 80,000 participants "reinforced the need for protective measures" to wipe out the virus.

That restrictions appear to help contain the spread of Covid-19 will help the Prime Minister impose curbs to smooth out the second wave.

At a press conference on Downing Street last night, Mr Johnson, flanked by Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance, vowed not to throw the sponge and surrender to demands to give up his strategy.

Critics have argued that recent measures, including local lockdowns and national restrictions such as curfew on pubs at 10 p.m., are ineffective, but are devastating the economy and violating civil liberties.

While the infection rate appears to be falling, the study commissioned by the Ministry of Health found that of the volunteers tested between Sept. 18-26, one in 200 people had coronavirus.

The virus was also shown to spread more rapidly among young people, while exposing the north-south divide and pointing to the northwest as the epicenter of the UK outbreak.

Professor Paul Elliott, Director of the School of Public Health Program at Imperial, said, “While our latest findings show some early evidence that the growth of new cases has slowed, suggesting that efforts to control the infection are working, is the prevalence of The infection is the highest we have recorded so far.

"This reinforces the need for protective measures to limit the spread of the disease and public compliance with these regulations. This will be critical to minimizing other significant diseases and deaths from Covid-19."

Despite the green shoots of recovery, the government is still under pressure after the introduction of the rule of six and other lockdown measures.

Mr Johnson was ridiculed Tuesday night and told to "get a grip" after messing with the Northeast's lockdown rules, forcing him to seldom apologize for "wrong speaking".

In a toe curling episode mirroring comedian Matt Lucas' parody of the government, the prime minister fidgeted as he was grilled over how the restrictions work – suggesting indoor households might still mingle in groups of six .

Then, to limit his embarrassment, Mr. Johnson had to tweet to clear up the confusion. He said he had spoken wrongly and that households should not mix indoors regardless of the number.

Labor vice-chair Angela Rayner claimed the prime minister failed to understand the rules he is imposing on two million people.

She added: “It is grossly incompetent if the prime minister does not understand his own rules. These new restrictions are due to take effect across much of the country tonight. The government needs to get a grip. & # 39;

Answering questions about the Northeast lockdown at Exeter College in Devon yesterday, Mr Johnson said: “Under the rule of six outside of areas like the Northeast where additional action has been taken, there are six inside and six outside.

“And in the northeast and other areas where particularly strict measures have been taken, you should follow instructions from local authorities.

“But it's six in a house or six in hospitality, but as I understand it, not six outside. That's the situation there. & # 39;

According to Whitehall sources, No10 was blind to Matt Hancock's decision to push the new restrictions, which had only been expected later this week.

The Prime Minister's mistake had nasty echoes of Lucas's skit that aired on Channel 4 at the start of the Great British Bake Off last week.

The comedian was dressed as Mr. Johnson and was attending a fake press conference on Downing Street. Lucas mocked the complicated rules, telling people to "bake in a tent" if they have to, before adding, "don't bake in a tent."

Last night the Prime Minister finally bowed to calls for MPs to vote on new lockdown restrictions after angry spokesman Lindsay Hoyle beat him up for treating the Commons with "contempt".

In the face of a major rebellion over the scope of new laws put in place by ministers without being seen by MPs, Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed that the government would consult Parliament on any restrictions across England or the UK and a vote will take place held in advance "wherever possible".

It came ahead of a vote in the House of Commons on the renewal of the coronavirus emergency powers, with around 100 MPs willing to force changes if the government didn't make concessions.

Mr Hancock said: "Today I can confirm to the House that we will consult Parliament on important national measures having effect across England or the UK – wherever possible we will vote before such rules come into force," he said said.

"But, of course, responding to the virus means the government must act quickly if necessary and we cannot comply with urgent regulations that are necessary to fight the virus and save lives."

Sir Graham Brady, who led the Tory Revolt, hailed the rise – which followed weeks of tension with the back benches. The motion was later approved by 330 votes to 24 and a majority of 306 votes.

Mr Johnson asked the British tonight to stick to his coronavirus plan, warning that a "more expensive" second full lockdown would have to be imposed unless the public behaved better.

Speaking at a # 10 press conference with Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance, the Prime Minister said it was too early to assess whether the 6pm and 10pm pubs curfew, introduced in the past 14 days, is working.

And he said the risk of the virus taking its course could overwhelm the NHS and cause many more deaths.

However, alluding to growing concerns about the consequences of restrictions, Mr Johnson said he intended to update the public "more regularly" in the coming weeks.

Boris Johnson's father Stanley faces a £ 200 fine after being seen shopping at his local newsagent WITHOUT a face mask

Boris Johnson's father faces a £ 200 fine after breaking coronavirus rules and shopping without a face mask.

79-year-old Stanley Johnson, who flew to his Greek villa a few months ago despite the pandemic travel warnings, was spotted without a face covering while looking for a newspaper in his local newspaper shops in west London on Tuesday.

The scenes come after the Prime Minister today urged the UK public to follow instructions and urged people to wear a mask in shops and public transport during a press conference on Downing Street.

After being caught red-handed without a mask, the prime minister's father admitted he "may not be 100 percent up to date" as the rules have just returned from abroad and said he was "extreme Sad".

He told The Mirror: “I may not have been 100 percent up to date, but this was my first day in England in three weeks, not England.

& # 39; So they (the rules) may have changed during that time. I'm not really that big of a shopper.

"I am very sorry for the slip and I want to urge absolutely everyone to do everything possible to make sure they follow the rules on masks and social distancing."

The scenes come just months after the Prime Minister faced an angry backlash after his father flown to his four-bed home in Greece – ignoring the Foreign Office's instructions that no one should travel unless otherwise be essential.

Although the government advised against all travel down to the essentials, Mr Johnson claimed he had to "prove" his villa before the rental season began.

The retired Tory MEP told the local and international press, “There is no question that I am breaking the law. The tourism minister here has my papers.

"The Greek government has always made it absolutely clear that the only thing they are banning is people coming from the UK on direct flights."

local people claimed he came to the area by private car after documenting his controversial trip from the UK on social media and sharing a video of himself on a plane and a selfie.

When he was later confronted with In the international media in Pelion, Mr Johnson said he was unaware of the outcry in Britain over his escape.

"It's true, I took the pictures," he said. “But I didn't set it up in a spirit of defiance…. I certainly had no intention of provoking anyone. & # 39;

Today Boris Johnson asked the British to follow the guidelines to avoid a second "more expensive" national lockdown.

He said, “Just let me tell you what I said to everyone, everyone should follow the instructions.

When you consider, do this not just to protect your neighbor, but ultimately when someone to whom you could pass the disease could infect someone you love. It is absolutely vital that we stop the disease from spreading. & # 39;

He added, “Wear a mask in the recommended manner when transporting.

"And remember, the fines are now very heavy and will be imposed."

Last week the Prime Minister announced that fines for lack of face covering would increase to £ 200 and become mandatory for bar staff, vendors, waiters and taxi drivers.
